In defeat, Saddam Hussein ordered his army to set fire to Kuwait's oil wells. With the loss of oil revenue and the environmental damage, it was up to famed Red Adair and other fearless firefighters to save the day!

The Kuwaiti Oil Fires is part of the non-fiction Disaster series that will engage listeners of all ages, including English Language Learners. These moments in history recall the death and destruction caused by both natural and manmade disasters around the world. The Disaster series probes the loss of the space shuttle Challenger's crew, the oil-well fires set in Kuwait by forces of Saddam Hussein's Iraq during the first Gulf War, the Korean airliner shot down by Russia in the Former Soviet Union, the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl, and the Mount St. Helens eruption.
